We needed to have a home appraised in order to get a loan with a lower interest rate.
I had called around to inquire with different appraisers and found Seabron & Associates to stand out from the rest.
When I spoke with Mr. Seabron he was very cordial and informative. He explained to me how much experience he had in the field and what level of training he had achieved. He informed me that his company did appraisals on residential homes as well as busninesses. He was available immediately (within two days) as we needed to have the home appraised in order to lock in a lower interest rate. He even moved around some personal obligations to be able to meet us at a time that was convenient for us.
And not to mention his prices. I had called around and other appraisers ranged from $375 to $450. I couldn't understand why such a variance for the same job. I was told that $350 was a standard rate charged in the industry for this type of appraisal. One company even wanted to charge a $50 surcharge for fuel. That was outrageous!
Mr. Seabron is a very respectful business person who charges a fair price and is very trustworthy and dependable. If ever the need arrises, please use their services. You will not be disappointed!
I'm sure many of you would agree that one's pet often is considered part of the family. In our household, our dog is a big part.
When we noticed that he wasn't feeling well, we decided to take him to the vet's for a check-up.
From the moment of just calling around to inquire about veterinary care, I was impressed by the staff at Laguna Creek Veterinary Hospital. They expressed to me how much they cared for animals and also told me about the level of training that the doctors had there.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a waiting room with pet owner's and pets. The receptionist was very friendly and even inquired by name about our dog. While waiting for our time with the vet. I had opportunity to speak with other pet owners and inquire how long they had been coming here and if they were satisfied. They all were.
Finally, our time arrived. The vet was very gentile with our dog and inquired as to what changes we noticed that brought us to bring her in for a visit. During the exam, the vet explained what she was doing and for what purpose. My daughter especially liked this as she is always very inquistive and loves our her dog very much.
The vet quickly deciphered what was ailing our dog and the course of treatment. Also, the vet noted that perhaps some dietary changes would benefit our dog.
This was a great experience and their prices were far better than others!
Growing up, we had an aquarium that always fascinated me.
I wanted that experience once again. I went to Capitol Aquarium to view what types of fish and products they had. I had expected just a trip to gather information, and ended up buying an aquarium that day.
Why you ask? I was very impressed by the staff their and their product array. I had always wanted a saltwater aquarium but always thought they were so much work to keep up. The staff showed me what to do to maintain the aquarium and illustrated how it wasn't that much more work than maintaining a freshwater aquarium.
They asked me how much room I had and where I was going to place the aquarium. Placement is important because you don't want to much sun or shade. Also, I learned that the size of the actual aquarium also dictates what type of fish to buy. Some need more space than others.
Also, they were very knowledgable on what species get along with others -- very important especially since many saltwater fish are very expensive.
Would recommend them to any friends any time.
My house was in dire need of a make-over. The yard has just become very mundane and needed a new look.
I chose Grant Line Nursery over one of the do-it-yourself homecenters because they specialize in landscaping.
Their service was top-notch. They went over what I kind of look I was going for and then asked about how much space I had. This was instrumental because certains trees, plants, and flowers need a certain amount of light an space. I would have never thought that so much details went into planning a new landscape.
They also recommended certain species that grow best in the local climate. They also helped me pick out special types of insecticide which was not harmful to the environment or to my pets. I definitely appreciate a company's sense of protecting the environment.
I have this lawnmower that is very testy and never seems to want to start. Finally fed up, I decided to take it to be serviced. I am most pleased that I found Asap Yardtools. They are friendly and allowed me to watch as they diagnosed what was wrong with my lawnmower. It was great to be able to do this so that in the future I might also be able to perform repairs myself. I love do-it-yourself projects.
Once they were done trouble-shooting my lawnmower, they gave me a free estimate on what the repairs would be. I especially liked that it was a free estimate as this allowed me the opportunity, if I had so chosen, to have it serviced elsewhere.
I most definitely felt their prices were reasonable and left my lawnmower to be serviced. I loved that it was done ahead of schedule.
It is in one's best interest to take their items to someone who specializes in repairing them.
I am the romantic type. I like getting my girlfriend flowes "just because" and not necessarily for just special occasions.
I have definitely found the right florist with knowledge and patience to help pick out flowers for different occasions.
Their shop is always very well decorated and welcoming. The prices they offer are far better to other florists I have been to.
They even gave me some tips on what the meanings of certain flowers and colors are. I never would have thought that some flowers mean that one is not truthful/faithful. I knew that red, especially roses, mean love. It was great to get so much more than just buying flowers from my experience with Flowers Unlimited. They even told be when certains flowers are in season and tips on what to grow in my own garden. Definitely a great experience and I will certainly turn to Flowers Unlimited in the future.
Having been an avid bicyclist in the past, I felt the need to return to riding. When I did so I turned to Elk Grove Cyclery to get me back on the road.
I very much like the vast product line that they carry. Their are many different brands and types of bicyles out there. The staff asked me what type of riding I would be doing the majority of the time.
From their we picked out a few models according to how much I wanted to spend, because their are the beginner bikes and then there are the very expensive ones for pros.
Next, they measured me to "fit" me to the frame size that would best suit me and make my riding experience fun and physically rewarding.
I was also allowed to take the bike on the road to see how I liked its feel and response in different road conditions. Other bike shops that I have been to never even offered this. From what I was told at the shop, different bikes feel and respond different when riding. It definitely helped me to choose the right bike.
Thank you Elk Grove Cyclery.
My automobile's stereo system just was not cutting it anymore. I think the speakers were just old. I decided to head over to Elk Grove Auto Sound and view what options and products they had for my particular car. I was met by a very friendly staff who didn't hover over me or keep asking if I needed help. For you see, I like to browse before making decisions on what to buy. When I did have questions the staff was always available to answer my questions and also make recommendations.
What I especially liked was how they knew to ask what type of vehicle I drove because there are certain types of speakers designed for specific vehicles. They even went out of their way to sit in my car to see what it sounded like and what type of music I listed to most often, as this also has a bearing on the type of products to choose.
Installation was very quick and professionally completed.
I would most definitely recommend Elk Grove Auto Sound.
Well, not really as the title implies. Fresh Cleaners is very efficient with the items they receive for dry cleaning. Although their prices are higher than those of other cleaners I've done business with, they always keep their word and have your items when you need them. Even for items such as alterations, they will get them back to you as soon as you need them. I especially like that they are open later than most cleaners, as sometimes we don't have time during "normal business hours" to run errands.
Most of us has had back issues at one point or another in our lives. Mine is with my lower back. A physical therapist by the name of Andrew has been treating me. He is very well-trained and learned. He explains every part of the treatment and shows on a human skeleton diagram what the problem is and how he is going to fix it. Always upbeat and friendly he has been instrumental in getting my back "back" to normal. Also, the receptionists are great and always smile. They even remember me by first name. Definitely would recommend to anyone ailing and in need of a physical therapist!
